He didn't win the "best video" award at the Europe Music Awards, so he decided to storm the stage when DJ Justice, of winners Justice vs. Simian was accepting the award and thanking the voters to complain.
He said: "**** this! My video cost a million dollars. Pamela Anderson was in it, I was jumping across canyons and ****! If I don't win, the awards show loses credibility. Nothing against you (Justice Vs Simian), but hell man."
And at the backstage press confrence he added: "I haven't seen (the Justice and Simian) video. Possibly it could have been quite good, but no way better than Touch The Sky. That is complete bull****, I paid a million. Obviously it's not all about the money, but the response it got transcended everything, it really made great TV. It took a month to film; I stood on a mountain; I flew a helicopter over Vegas. I did it to be the king of all videos and I wanted to walk home with that award. (The reason the other video won) - That was some spread the love bull****, 'Oh everyone should have an award.' Please press people print, 'Kanye says **** that!'"
I'm shocked that he didn't play the race card, you know, "MTV Europe doesn't care about African Americans" or something half assed like that. Here's
the on stage rant up on You Tube.
